Bodywork & Trim

Completely restored body, chassis, and floors. The body was acid dipped before the restoration started and after the bodywork was done the car received a special cleaning bath and then was again dipped and coated ( cataforese) for a through protection against rust.

The car received a high-end paint job with multi-layers of F8 factory original metallic paint and multi-layers of clear coat and afterward's more than 200 hours were spent in polishing and sanding the car to a perfect high gloss shine. If you would see this car live you will be amazed at its quality paint job and straight body panels and perfect gaps for a 45-year-old car.

All chrome was redone and every piece of trim was restored or replaced by original parts.
The car even has a factory original NEW grill which was found after intensive searches in the states.
And knowing that the original grill that came with the car was already in very nice condition ( and still with us) it
tell's you how meticulous the restoration was done !..

NO cost where spared ! this car was restored with passion for quality!

General discription

For sale by PTTM & client :

Real deal 1970 V code Plymouth Roadrunner 440-6 ( Sixpack) 4-speed Supertrack pack and Airgrabber car!

Its fully original and correct to its build sheet and fender tag and all body numbers and Engine and Trans Vin numbers match to the car. The car was high-quality Rotisserie restored by PedalToTheMetal and the work was finished in 2014. A very rare and highly collectible car. 

Everything you see on the car was either new, restored or rebuilt to the best possible standards. This rare car is also build to be driven and is not JUST a showpiece. Its one of only a hand full 1970 440-6 4 speed cars left in existence today and in this color and option combination it was one of a hand full build when new. There were only a total of 693- 4 speeds build ! and this car has the highly wanted Super track pack rear axle package with 4.10 gears and also the MUST HAVE air grabber intake system. It's a true icon ! and highly collectible.

The Plymouth roadrunner was, in its time, a true street racer and developed on the B.Body platform by Chrysler. The first model was introduced in 1968 and a complete facelift was given for the 1970 model year and was again changed in 1971. This means the 1970 model is unique was only produced 1 year. With its fantastic name Roadrunner, which came from the worldwide known Roadrunner / Wile E. Coyote cartoons back in the 60's by Loony tunes, which represents the fast and untouchable Roadrunner bird that featured in the cartoon. With its famous call, MIEP MIEP, it ran off like a bat out of hell and was never caught by the coyote or anything else. This was also true for the car, the Roadrunner was a sleek, non-deluxe car and purely build and marketed for the younger car buyer that wanted performance and to be "untouchable" on the streets and at the stop signs.

The cars had special performance engines, starting with the 383 big block that put out 335HP, than came the 440-6 engine ( the Roadrunners were never equipped with the 440 engine, as that was reserved for the GTX model) with 390HP and an estimated 395HP for the air grabber version and as top of the line the Hemi 426 engine with 425HP. All engines could be had with either an automatic transmission ( TF 727) or the more suitable option for a street performance car the 4 speed with the famous 4-speed pistol grip. In the end, all 3 engines were underrated and had up to 30% more power than Chrysler listed which was due to the fact that the cars otherwise would not be insurable as insurance companies banned the real high-performance cars.

All in all the Roadrunner was the car to have back in the late 60's and early 70's and when equipped with the famous 440-6 engine ( with 3x2 Holley carb's and special intake) 4 speed and the race rear axle package ( Super track pack) with their 4.10 rear end gears, these cars were amongst the fastest car of there era. We have also heard and found that the Sixpack cars were FASTER than the Hemi cars and especially when equipped with the 4 speeds. ( A 4-speed car brings more than 25% more power to the rear axle than an automatic car! ).

These cars did 0.60 ( 0-100) in 5 seconds ! and even by today's standards, these cars are still amongst the fastest's cars around! So this particular Roadrunner, that we are proud to offer to our clients, is still one of the fastest's and highest output V8 cars around. Combined with its Airgrabber hood, its manual 4 speed and 425+HP engine it's a TRUE performance classic car. For a 45 year old car, that's truly AMAZING !. And that in combination with the cars name, humorous roadrunner and Wil e coyote's decals and emblems.. its real MIEP MIEP sounding airhorn, and its sleak and aggressive body lines makes this car great to have, drive and enjoy.

The fact that its numbers match and has its original factory build sheet and fender tag still present to prove its pedigree makes the car even more rare and unique. And that's what's makes this car a true and rare collector car and a great investment with prices of these rare and correct original cars keeping ricing in the years to come. When was the last time you saw an all original 70'RR 440+6, 4 speed !, Dana 60 car,, ALL MATCH and restored to this quality ?.

The quality of the car is truly stunning and it looks like it just came new from the showroom floor back in 1970, although we feel it might even be more than new seeing the quality of the paint, engine in and externals, the highly detailed underside, ( the car has a painted underside that looks just as amazing as the top !) and every nut, bolt, screw and wire was redone to as new or better condition. ( More than 125000,- was spend in the restoration alone ) !.

The last owner and PTTM speedshop spend more than 2000 hours in the restoration. Its now for sale because the owner ( a true Mopar guy ) would like to start a new project soon. The car was driven for approx.1500 miles since it was built and it runs, drives, brakes and steers fantastic and everything works as it should!

440-6 (pack) engine
Air grabber hood
Metallic paint

  • Guide: Matching numbers

    In the collector car hobby, most investment-minded buyers are acutely interested in a specific car’s history. One of the main aspects of that history is an original or, as most people state it, numbers-matching drivetrain. At pedaltothemetal muscecars we feature a plethora of original and numbers-matching classics including ‘Cudas, Road Runners, Chevelles, Camaros, Corvettes and Trans Ams. And, if a potential buyer knows how to properly identify and interpret certain manufacturing codes, they can further validate their car’s history, or on request we can provide it.

  • Vehicle claims and descriptions

    Vehicle/product descriptions, representations and claims on or offline are based on what can be seen by the human eye, documentation, previous professional experience, opinion, factory claims, and, or, information passed on to us by previous owners or restorers. It's to the best of our knowledge that everything we advertise has all indications of being that claim. Please inquire as to what documentation we have on the vehicle you are purchasing or feel free to ask any additional questions you might have, But by no means you can accept our answers as facts as the are our interpretation and might not match yours. It is with integrity and honesty that we describe our cars, but they are in fact, up to 50 years old, may have had many previous owners, modifications or alterations that are unknown to the us, so it's not possible to verify everything about every car in detail. Thereby the stated conditions or details of a car can never ever be taken as a fact. As always we welcome personal inspections and or independent appraisers prior to a sale. Incase we speak of "Original" or "Matching numbers" it means that we asume that to be the case, but with old classic cars thats by no means a guarantee. So please feel free to verify that in person or with a third party.

    Pttm goes a step further than almost every other seller(s), as we also do a full inspection of our vehicles prior to having them for sale in our showroom and make repairs improvements if needed so. And when a vehicle/product is sold we give it a full service check before you receive it !
